Join me next week for a panel on AR for Retail

Augmented reality (AR) poses unlimited possibilities for transforming the way we interact with the world around us, but can the technology help retail out of its rut? Since 2008, over 12,000 physical stores have been closed due to changes in spending habits and the rise of companies such as Amazon.
